Re: Buying Paint

I'm sat here looking at a 6'6" doorway, and I'd estimate the ceiling is at least 3'6" above the door. It may even be 4' higher. It is probably 3 metres(9.84 ft), as strange as it may seem, metric is the standard here. :rasta: In the old money a standard door is: 6ft 8" x 2ft 8'', (68, 28) drummed i...

Re: How can Thailand curb its appalling road fatality rate?

.............a visit to my wife's hometown in Khampeng Phet saw the construction of a driving center. This is interesting as they finally may be targeting the correct people - the ones who are just starting out. Are you sure it a private school? In Phrae province there is a big "test centre" that b...

Here is the company BB recommends as an alternative to Shrink Pictures: http://www.faststone.org/FSResizerDetail.htm It is not the resizer that is the problem. I have been using the following, and although it had a glitch a couple of weeks ago, it works good. Using Windows 10 including the latest u...

Re: Alternative way to upload images to the forum.

I've never know it not to work. Pete Shrink Pictures will NOT work for me and has not done so for a bout a year. I also have problems trying to upload ANY photo despite shrinking it. In fact I have had to ask you Pete to do it for me a couple of times. The last time I posted the resized photo just ...

Re: How can Thailand curb its appalling road fatality rate?

During the recent rains I was dismayed but not surprised to observe that many drivers didn’t decrease their speed,......
But, but, but, we switch on the hazard lights so that all you silly drivers that slow down can see that we are first!

I believe the biggest one is the "Artists Village" just off the Pala-U road. Many different artists have displays there, although some may only be on the weekend.

Re: Selling a car

You could ask K. Pichai at "L" Motors opposite the Palace just before the lights going North. He, or rather his Father, used to dabble in used cars, and also has an outlet just before Cha Am. There is a used car yard further out on Petchkasem Rd on the east side of the road. Not sure near which Soi,...

Re: Biggest Benefit to Being Expat

Living here on a long stay non-immigrate visa does not make you a "resident" for tax purposes. In Thailand you become a tax-resident when you stay 180 days in a calendar year, regardless of your visa. Yes, tourists too. Obviously this isn't being enforced or effectively practiced, but it is the law...
